Die frühen Jahre des Meisters waren einfach die Besten, keine Frage. Und hier drin steht alles, was man wissen muß, kann und sollte. Da gibts nicht mehr zu zu sagen ;)

What this book does it introduce a subject (the production of Pretty Hate Machine for example), mention that it heavily used synthesizers, then go into the history of synthesizers. After 2 pages, then it gets back to the topic at hand. And while sometimes I was intrigued by the information provided (say, for FLOOD), most times it was something that either didn't need to be mentioned in a book about Trent Reznor, or could be in a book about the industrial music movement.
I used the same method in my senior composition class to pad papers, but in this case it wasn't warranted.
Come to think of it, the book tries at times to be an all encompassing encyclopedia of industrial music, which isn't why I bought it at all. I suppose I'm more knowledgeable about it because of the information provided, but it wasn't by choice.
The information about NIN is fascinating, and ends with the recording of their live album "And All That Could Have Been." Overall, I liked the book, but could have lived without the extraneous information about everything under the sun.
And he's right, of course. One may love or hate Reznor's contributions to the world of music, but no one can dispute the fact that he's had an enormous impact and has been, and still is, a huge influence on countless musicians all over the world.
Still, Nine Inch Nails feels more like a summary than a biography.
Reznor isn't the one with the longest career in the music business, but throughout the 232 pages of the book Udo nonetheless fails to get into any kind of depth when it comes to Reznor and his music. In all fairness it should be mentioned that Udo never claims to have written the ultimate biography, which is quite fortunate, because then the end result would have been truly horrible, instead of how it is right now: semi-bad.
A freakishly large part of the text is made up of quotes from different magazines, and more or less every single one of these quotes have one or more errors or typos that not even an apprentice proof-reader should ever have missed. The continuous use of various quotes do result in one getting the feeling that Udo really doesn't have any personal opinions about Reznor and his music and instead simply relies on what other believe. It really does give the appearance of being the easy way out, and the innumerable typos and grammatical errors soon become a massive nuisance.
Udo might be the most passionate fan out there, but passion doesn't always automatically lead to great results.
is a book that many fans might appreciate, but the lack of depth is sure to piss many people off, too. I wasn't looking for anything but an overview, so to me it was OK. But still far from great.
